Architectural rendering of JPR Studio and Oregon Center for the Arts complex (West elevation facing Mountain Ave. on SOU Ashland campus)After over 46 years operating from the same cramped, outdated facility located in the basement of Central Hall on the Southern Oregon University campus, JPR is getting a new home. As part of the renovation and expansion of SOU's theatre and performing arts building, The Oregon Center for the Arts, a new state-of-the-art JPR studio facility is being constructed with completion scheduled for March, 2018.This project will create better space from which to produce the JPR programming our listeners rely on each day. But it will also create new opportunities for JPR to engage the community in our mission with a new live performance studio capable of accommodating a small live audience, an expanded newsroom and new spaces for both SOU students and community volunteers to work.Learn more about this exciting project at the links below.Make a contribution to this project by CLICKING HERE or download, print and mail our pledge form HERE.
